This thoroughly winning comedy is hard to resist. Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) are two high school fuck-ups who dream of rock glory - if only they can get Eddie Van Halen to join their band Wyld Stallyns.
Only problem is, they’re flunking out in school, and their future hinges on a history presentation. Enter time-traveling wizard George Carlin who literally brings the boys back through the ages to teach them history - as it happens…
When the Eddie-less Stallyns combine their history presentation with a rock concert before the whole school.
Reeves and Winter breaking out in frenzied, air guitar silliness every time something cool happens. Or when the two are threatened with being put in an actual iron maiden and, clueless, they exclaim, "Iron Maiden? Awesome!"
